Gene takes a dunking
In this 1936 Republic western, Gene Autry has to do a fight scene with George Chesbro on location at a waterworks dam. Since the camera was filming close-up, Gene had to do his own stunts. He told later of how he almost drowned in the raging water. A few years later, Roy Rogers would also do a film called "Red River Valley" but a different plot. When these films were released to television, the Autry film took the title "Man of the Frontier" to avoid confusion with the Rogers film.
